The fires that raged across southern Africa this August and September produced a thick ''river of smoke'' over the region. NASA-supported studies currently underway on the event will contribute to improved air pollution policies in the region and a better understanding of its impact on climate change. This year the southern African fire season peaked in early September. The region is subject to some of the highest levels of biomass burning in the world...

After coming ashore on June 30, 2003, just east of Morgan City, Louisiana, the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill continued to produce heavy rain through the southeastern United States and mid-Atlantic region as the system tracked northeastward across the country. The heaviest rainfall totals were along the Gulf Coast east of where Bill made landfall. Some areas between western Louisiana and the Florida panhandle received upwards of 10 inches of rain according to observations from the Multi-satelli...
